Over 300 UCC Staff Sign Petition Urging University To Scrap Plans To Introduce 3% Rent Hike
It comes as students begin their fourth day of protest against the plans, which will impact around 1,300 students at five apartment complexes.
The protest continues to grow, with up to 60 students camping out on the quad last night.
A spokesperson for UCC says the University is working to ensure students welfare is protected during their protest and say the board did not take its decision to increase rents by a maximum of €20 per month lightly.
Speaking to RedFM News Naoise Crowley from the Students' Union says the protest is gaining momentum every day:
